If you've never made an emergency purchase the morning of an event, then you deserve a medal. In my circle of friends, it's basically our weekend hobby (I need to get some more organised friends). We often find that we use racing season as an excuse to run out and buy something new to wear and then the accessories to match at the last minute. Our lack of organisation means it's always an ill-informed decision, and the purchase ends up sitting at the back of the closet after race day.
This year, we will not do that (and neither will you). There's a way to tackle racing season without having to go out and specifically feel the pressure to buy something just for race day. You can be smart, and buy something new for the day that you'll continue to wear long after you've left the racecourse.
We've shortlisted seven accessory brands that are perfect for race day and beyond. Keep scrolling to discover and shop our edit.
